Some of the beaders who come to our workshops are already very accomplished. Johnette is a prime example. She loves making jewelry although her lessons in the past have been sporadic. One class she did was lamp working. Imagine our delight when she brought her own handmade focal bead to a workshop!

The red, white and black lamp work bead was a vibrant color combination. I like how she stayed true to the colors with

the seed beads and the pewter beads from Debbie's (Widgets' Beads, my co-instructor) collection. But what was really delightful was how she alternated the colors in the two strands. This goes to show that sometimes the simplest of tricks can add loads of individuality to a design. Johnette does indeed have a natural talent for it.
